I recently bought an arrangement of succulents at Home Depot none of them were labeled I have figured out what several are. I believe the first picture to be a pachyphytum oviferum, although I'm not sure because it looks quite different than those that I have seen online. Also I was thinking that the 3rd picture is a graptosedum Alpenglow and the 2nd one California Sunset (actually the 2nd one was labeled as Graptosedum California sunset in a different arrangement I bought recently). But someone else told me that it's the other way around that the 3rd picture is the California Sunset and the 2nd one is the Alpenglow I'm very very confused at this point and I would love some help in identifying the succulents thank you

Well, at least you know why you aren't getting any responses. Blinking

Whatever they are, full sun (indoors) and water when the soil feels dry (use your finger moisture meter stuck into the soil a couple inches down). A community pot, usually with more soil than any succulent has a right to, will dry more slowly, making over watering a real possibility.

The community pot looks okay to me. I don't know how deep it is but the spacing is good. But Daisy's right, watch the watering over the winter. I suspect you'll see them really perk up come spring. The first plant is my favorite and I think it'll look great when it grows up and flowers.

Thanks so much! I've only been growing succulents about 2 years,and like anything else I become involved in,I go hard. Rolling my eyes. I've been researching,journaling and reading anything I can find on their care and maintenance. I didn't want to cram them all tightly together in one pot, and i have them in a succulent mix with added perlite and pea gravel. I am very careful not to overwater,and will even use my spray bottle to hard spray directly into the soil around one that needs watering because I have acquired several recently that are on different "schedule". Here is the dish they are in,its very hard plastic ( Had to drill holes in it for drainage) . Anyway, thanks so much for commenting, I'm thankful! I love my plant babies and just wish I knew their name!

Does the container have a hole at the bottom?

Yes I Drilled (actually hammered a large nail because I didn't have a drill,and the plastic is VERY thick and hard) about 8 holes around the bottom. I did this around the outside and the inside in 2 circles and put one bigger hole in middle

I think there is a graptosedum(graptopetalum x sedum), among the lines of california sunset, or least a hybrid of one of the members of the sedum nussbaumerianum/adolphii group(the last pinkish plant). The one above it maybe something similar. If it werent for the brightness of the flash, id guess graptosedum vera higgins. The first, with the dull leaves may be a pachyphytum hybrid.

Thanks so much! I have been researching extensively and from what I've been able to gather the first one is a patchyphytum and the one in the middle that has a greenish tint to it is a California sunset the third one I believe is an alpenglow. I was looking online and someone had the EXACT same question as me with pics.. it really cleared some things up for me in reference to ID'ing these plants. the best information that I was able to obtain is that with these Graptosedums the Alpenglow (Vera Higgins) usually has smaller leaves and rosettes than the Cal. Sunset. It can be really hard to ID succulents as there are so many different hybrids I'm confident that the middle one is a California Sunset( it did have that name on it,from Altman plants) and although I have it under grow lights 12 to 16 hours a day it's just not getting the Sun that it needs and I'm hoping that come springtime when it's outside more it will get more color thank you so much for your comment

I believe all of your comments above regarding the descriptions are spot on, and I do think you have them labeled correctly. As was mentioned, the flash makes it difficult to id. Maybe @Tarev can verify.
